Discussion: Movie Trivia 10

2awesom and J3: I guess I didn't think of what to do when 2 guys answer the questions. So I'll post the answers (interesting stuff) and a tie-breaker question.

Age difference between Dustin and Anne: 6 years - hard to imagine.

Dustin was paid $20,000. The budget for the film was only $100,000, but ran over. Dustin netted about $6,000 after his expenses on the film and was on unemplyment soon after,

Dreyfus got the Oscar for Goodbye Girl before Dustin got his.

Tie-Breaker Question: What is the connection between Dog Day Afternoon and Rocky Horror Picture Show?

Finally! You guys are so good, I barely can jump in.

I've collected quite a few trivia questions. So, since I might not get back in for a while, I've listed 3 of my favorites from The Graduate. Getting 2 of 3 approximately right makes you a winner.

We all know the story of Dustin Hoffman has an affair with his girlfriend's mother, Anne Bancroft.

1. What is the real-life age difference between Dustin and Bancroft?

2. What was Dustin paid for his role in the Graduate?

3. My first role was as a bit actor in The Graduate. My role was to poke my head into Dustin's room and say one line and disappear (3+ seconds max). Ironically, I won a Best Actor Oscar before Dustin! Who am I?

Discussion: HEADFIRST SLIDING

It's time to confess my most embarrassing softball moment.

I was taking an extra base going to 3rd because the SS muffed the relay when my (stern, but loveable) manager indicated "Slide! Slide!" I knew I was in trouble.

I learned the game in NYC concrete school yards, and never slid min my life. But, because of my manager's "sternness" I slid headfirst hoping not be balled-out.

My slide was beautiful with a big cloud of dust and dirt. I heard the ump yell, Safe!" I felt great! But it didn't last.

When the dust settled, EVERYONE noticed my outstretched fingers were 4" from 3rd base. It was the loudest "You're out!" I ever heard.

At our year-end team party, I was awarded the Super Slider - a vest with small training wheels attached at the chest area.

So, now you know how to identify me on the field. Look for the bright orange Super Slider vest!

Discussion: Why Play Down?

Audieh - great post, but wrong question.

Here's my 2 cents worth: Virtually no one wants to "play down," but just about all of us want to be rated "fairly." I've managed and been on AA, AAA, Major, Major+ teams and none of the players on these teams wanted to be in a division where they creamed the competition. BUT, player don't wants to go to a tournament and lose 100% of its games over and over again -- most will quit or find another team after a couple of years.

Another point: It is apprpriate for teams to be moved up for 1 to 2 years after winning the Worlds. Most divisions have 100+ teams (except Major+ and some Majors) and the teams that came in 2nd, 3rd, 4th, etc. should have a chance to win the Worlds without playing the previous year's winner..

PS Good post, Shane

Llama Man,

Sorry, I responded to the wrong post. Just confirms what my wife says about my dwindling mind.

Discussion: Clarification

A major change regarding ratings was announced at this year's Summit meeting: Each association will be responsible for its own ratings versus using to one master “Summit” rating system.

The various associations tried for years to maintain one ratings list to be used across all associations. This didn’t work because only SS USA strictly monitors rosters. So, SS USA decided to maintain its own national ratings and would no longer use the results from other associations’ in deciding the SS USA ratings.

Bottom line for me: SS USA will have the most credible ratings. Other associations will likely use SS USA’s ratings as a starting point, but I would expect rosters to be “flexible.”

Unfortunately, SS USA has not yet updated its website to reflect this change.

Discussion: Has Anyone Tracked Where The Offensive Team Hits The ball

Nancy Allen,

Thanks, good info. What skill level were the teams (AAA, Major, etc.)? Were there many home runs?

There seemed to be a huge difference at 3rd base for the first and second game. Any insight as to why?

OOOOOPS.

I just read that the quote I posted is not an ad-lib. The producer said it was a myth that "I'm walking here! I'm walking here!" was an ad-lib.

Sorry guys. Someone else is up.

You got Taxi Driver.

Hint for other film: It was the first and only X-rated film to receive the Best Picture Oscar from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

There are at least 2 quotes from the Top 100 Quotes that were ad-libs. Name them.


Hints: Both were spoken and created by men who are considered two of the very best actors. Both quotes were repeated when spoken in the films. The films came out in 1976 and 1969

J3, the movie-dude,

Bill Durham - great quote, but didn't make the Top 100 list.

Rosebud is correct!

As far as I can tell, the first movie with Abbott and Costello's routine (Who's on First?.... ) was "The Naughty Nineties"

I tried to get either sports movies (A League of their own) or a quote about sports (On the waterfront). So that's why I didn't put Love Story, Forrest Gump, and Top Gun on my sports list (they are all on the Top 100 list).

2 more down, 2 more to go.

Caddy Shack is correct: "Cinderella Story. Outta nowhere. A former groundskeeper, now, about to become the Masters champion. It looks like a mirac....It's in the hole! It's in the hole! It's in the hole!"

On the Waterfront: "You don't understand! I coulda had class. I coulda been a contender. I could've been somebody, instead of a bum, which is what I am."

Baseball another hint - The quote is very long, many words.

Winter "sports" (sledding) another hint - The quote is very short, one word.
